Details of Tinubu’s Meeting With Wike, Other G5 Governors Emerge

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Thursday, June 5, received the G-5 governors of the PDP at the Presidential Villa.

Those present at the meeting were, ex Governors; Samuel Ortom, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Nyesom Wike, Okezie Ikpeazu and the current Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde.

A few hours after the meeting, the conversations the governors had with the president surfaced online.

G5 members, popularly called the Integrity Group of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Thursday, June 8, met President Bola Ahmed Tinubu amidst speculations that the group may be planning to join the ruling party. 

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo, however, said the G5 members only visited Tinubu to brief him on the latest happenings and their stance on fairness, equity and justice in the country.

Makinde, who was flanked by the four other members of the group who are now immediate past governors, further acknowledged that nation-building is a difficult task and demands constant evaluation.

The G5, according to him, will keep meeting with the president on the way forward for the country. 

“Nation building is a very difficult task. You have to keep evaluating, you know what you’re doing, where you’re going. So, we have to keep seeing the President, you know, to let him know what is happening. 

“The G-5, the Integrity Group, came to let the President know what we stood for fairness, justice, and equity,” Seyi Makinde disclosed while addressing State House correspondents after the closed-door meeting. 

Recall that Governor Makinde and Wike have become frequent visitors to the Villa between last week and today as the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly draws nearer.
